What a wonderful day for a party.
I am no longer a wall flower at this party, girls!
I took the plunge and decided to join the
7th Bead Soup Blog Party.
Our lovely hostess, Lori Anderson,
gets a bunch of bead loving people together
(541 this time)
to be paired up and swap bead soups.
My partner for this reveal is Lori.
Here is the soup she sent me.
I love the colors of the beads.
I knew immediately what I wanted to do with
the silver rings and clasp.
The focal is amazing.
But what to do with it???
The first thing I did was set the focal to the side,
because quite frankly
I had absolutely no clue what to do with it.
One thing I did know was that I did not want to just use it
for a necklace.
I had these pink beads for some time now
and figured these would
make a great necklace along with the
rings and then use the clasp.
At each end of the pink beads I put a white seed bead and one of the spacers.
Then hooked them together with the larger rings.
Here's how it came out....
Of course I made a pair of earrings to go along with it.
Now back to the focal...
I wanted to try wire crocheting,
so I took the pink and blue crystals and
I wrapped the wire to attach it to the focal
I made a bracelet with it.
I am still not 100 on the bracelet,
because the focal is kinda heavy for the wire size I used.
I did not get to make anything with the
white round rings,
but I will work on it and post at another time.
I want to thank Lori for the soup and for hosting
this wonderful party.
Make sure to check out what everyone else made.
